|Mom's Fall leaf Swedish Sour Cream Cookies|
But I also have to be realistic. I could not bake bread, or make noodle dough with out this new powerful bosch mixer. My hands will not knead any more. I make most of my own pasta noodles and the dough is really hard for me to roll. So here comes another gadget. If it does not work well I will return it. I do boxes of apples in the fall so this now peeler will come in very handy. Again if it does not work it goes back!
We took mom out to dinner Saturday night. She loved it. She really loves to go out. We used gift cards so it cost us nothing but the tip. Then we came home and watch the last of the Roosevelt series. So interesting as she lived all through that area.
Mom frosted all the cookies while hubs ad I went to church. Well actually we had made all the gold star cookies and bagged them for the children. So she did the rest. They were beautiful! Looked just like a pile of fall leaves. I don't want to eat them. Just shellac them for a center piece. Remember shellacked bread? You had it as a center piece. Please ignore the messy table we had not cleaned up yet!
The two youngest girl and their boyfriends came for dinner. It was lovely on the back deck, of course too much food so we will eat left overs today. Washed dishes until 8:30 and then crashed in front of the TV. Mom went to bed early as she was not feeling well. She ate too many sweets.
But this morning she is up like a mad woman and I have to get busy. I have a late lunch meeting with the civic board and several teachers to solidify the Nutcracker. Always something.
Out My Window: Rainy and cool. I can handle that.
I am off to the races!
Have a great and productive day!
